Japan’s Mitsui & Co is said to have returned to a Hyundai yard for a pair of MR product tanker newbuildings.

Shipbuilding sources said the trading house ordered the 50,000-dwt vessels at Hyundai Vietnam Shipbuilding, formerly Hyundai Vinashin Shipbuilding.

The deal lifts the company’s MR order tally at the yard to six, with four vessels ordered last year.
